As technology innovations go, battery life tries to grow without affecting the size of the laptop/notebook. Dell took the idea of an 11' ultrabook to the next level & thinned the fat off the new Dell XPS 13. This bad-boy has the frame of an 11 inch ultrabook with a screen resolution of a 13 inch.
Selecting the right hard drive for your laptop or PC just became a bit easier thanks to Mushkin. The introduction of the ECO2 series of SSD's brings the price per gigabyte down to well below .50 cents, and it does so with reliability and a trusted brand name. With read speeds up to 550MB/sec and write speeds up to 530MB/sec you are getting a very competitive SSD at an excellent price that is suitable for all of your storage needs. The ECO2 is being introduced in 120, 240, and 480GB capacities and while you would think that at 480GB the price tag would be similarly inflated the 480GB version retails for a mere $159.99 making it the best SSD deal we have seen.
Today we are taking a look at the Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400 16GB kit. The Crucial Ballistix Sport is designed for performance enthusiasts and anyone who simply wants to get more out of their system. With Micron’s 35 years of experience in the DDR memory market there is no doubt in my mind that the Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4 can deliver a high level of reliability and performance at a current price of $230.
Powercolor is one of those unique brands that never fails to impress with their offerings. They give enthusiasts the opportunity to choose between the Powercolor Devil 13 Dual R9 290x, a dual GPU power house released long before anyone else, or the Powercolor LCS R9 290X, a custom watercooling-only top of the line card. It is no surprise that Powercolor was also one of the few to bring out an 8GB version of AMD flagship Hawaii chipset known as the PCS+ R9 290X 8GB edition. The PCS+ R9 290X 8GB edition is currently priced at $430 and competes against's Nvidia's flag ship GTX 980 and GTX 970 on a core perforance level and against Nvidia's Titan, the R9 290X2, and other offerings of the R9 290X 8GB edition.

CES 2015 Event Coverage Captherm Systems
We ran across this company in the Sands Expo showing off some truly remarkable technology that could very well give traditional watercooling a run for the money. Captherm Systems was demonstrating a self contained phase change system that boasted better efficiency and cooling that both heatsinks and watercooling. The small system uses a vertical radiator seated on top of what could be called the most manly waterblock made to date. The waterblock is comprised of 4 different metals which Captherm Systems melds together using small explosions. Yes thats right Captherm blows things up to create their product.
